Vermont group wants Cheney, Bush charged with war crimes

Associated Press - December 28, 2007 7:05 PM ET

MONTPELIER, VT. - President Bush and Vice President Cheney may soon have a new reason to avoid left-leaning Vermont: In one town, activists want them subject to arrest for war crimes.

A group in Brattleboro is petitioning to put an item on the Town Meeting agenda in March that would make Bush - who's been to every state except Vermont as president - and Vice President Cheney subject to arrest and indictment if they visit the southeastern Vermont town.

Fifty-4-year-old Kurt Daims, a retired machinist leading the charge, says the petition is as radical as the Declaration of Independence and draws on that tradition.

But it's unclear whether the group can get the one thousand signatures necessary to get the measure on the Town Meeting Day agenda.

State Attorney General William Sorrell says that even if passed, the measure would be of dubious legal value.

=======================

"War Made Easy reaches into the Orwellian memory hole to expose a 50-year pattern of government deception and media spin that has dragged the United States into one war after another from Vietnam to Iraq. Narrated by actor and activist Sean Penn, the film exhumes remarkable archival footage of official distortion and exaggeration from LBJ to George W. Bush, revealing in stunning detail how the American news media have uncritically disseminated the pro-war messages of successive presidential administrations."
